The number of single-family homes sold in Kohala in December 2019 increased Ka Milo at Mauna Lanislightly from December 2018, with 31 homes selling in December this year, up from 29 homes sold in 2018. This rise in sales volume only happened in South Kohala, with North Kohala having a minor decrease from 7 homes sold to 6. The condo market also experienced a decline, with the number of units sold decreasing substantially year over year in December from 27 to 19 units.  

As with the December numbers, the year-to-date sales volume increased slightly in 2019 over 2018, from 343 single-family homes sold last year to 349 homes sold this year. This overall increase happened in both parts of Kohala, as the number of single-family homes in North Kohala increased from 67 homes sold in 2018 to 72 this year.

Puako BeachSouth Kohala, experienced a an even smaller increase, rising just one unit, from 276 homes last year to 277 homes sold this year. The condo market experienced a slight change in the other direction, with year-to-date sales volume falling from 304 units sold in 2018, to 299 units sold this year.

Even though the volume of single-family homes sold in December 2019 was up slightly in Kohala from December 2018, the change in median sales price was mixed. The median sale price in South Kohala was up a healthy $45,750, from $603,250 in December 2018 to $649,000 in December 2019, while in North Kohala, the median sales price in December 2019 decreased to $662,500 from $689,000 in December 2018.

Along with its decrease in sales volume, the condo market also experienced a dramatic decrease in median sales price, with the December 2019 median sales price decreasing to $599,000 from $669,500 in December 2018.

The 2019 year-to-date median sales price numbers in Kohala all had marginal Big Island Mapchanges, with the single-family homes in North Kohala having the largest change, falling a modest 4.97% from $755,000 in 2018 to $717,500 this year. The single-family homes in South Kohala had a slight movement in the other direction, increasing just 0.50%, from $596,000 in 2018 to $599,000 this year. Meanwhile, the condo market year-to-date number was also slight change, falling just 0.37% from $540,000 in 2018 to $538,000 this year.


Analysis
: With almost all market and statistical segments having incremental movements in one direction or the other, I would have to describe the current market as stagnant. The 2019 numbers are almost the same as the 2018 numbers. It remains to be seen if this is a “pause” in the market, or a trend.

Kohala Waterfront
The Kohala Coast is the majestic area located on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. The name Big Island came about as to distinguish it from the State of Hawaii. Kohala is split into two areas, North Kohala and South Kohala, with North Kohala covering the northern, more rural end of the island, which includes the small towns of Hawi and Kapa’au, as well as the Kohala Ranch neighborhoods a little farther south.

Mauna Lani Resort
South Kohala
covers the world class resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resorts, the small town of Waikoloa Village, located 6 miles inland from the resorts, and Waimea, the beautiful town in the interior Waimea Valley. You can find market updates for many of these areas by visiting the Market Update Page on my website.

The sales volume in all market segments moved slightly in one direction or another in Mauna Lani Resort 2019. North Kohala experienced the largest change, with the sales volume increasing by 9%, from 67 single-family homes sold in 2018 to 73 sold in 2019.

The number of single-family homes sold in South Kohala increased by just one unit, from 276 homes in 2018 to 277 homes sold this past year. The number of condos sold in 2019 experienced a slight decline, falling from 304 units sold in 2018, to 301 units sold in 2019, a drop of 1%.

The same could be said about the median sale price in 2019, with single-family homes in all areas of Kohala experiencing slight variations from their 2018 numbers. North Kohala RanchKahala had the largest variation, falling a modest 3% from $755,000 in 2018 to $735,000 in 2019.

The single-family homes in South Kohala had a small move in the other direction, rising a slight 0.50%, from $596,000 in 2018 to $599,000 in 2019. The condo market also had a very slight move, decreasing a minor 0.93% from $540,000 in 2018 to $535,000 in 2019.


Analysis
: The sales volume and median sales price numbers on the Kohala Coast all experienced changes so small they could be considered insignificant. With 2017 and 2018 being two solid years, the sales volume in 2019 being the same amount is not necessarily a bad thing, but the stagnant median sales prices are somewhat surprising. As we enter 2020, it remains to be seen if this is a market “pause” or a trend.

: The sales volume of single-family homes and condos in Mauna Lani Resort has remained fairly constant throughout 2019.

As for the single-family home segment, we were in a Buyers’ Market even before the usual winter inventory increase.

Kohala Waterfront
The Kohala Coast is located on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is called the Big Island as to differentiate it between the State of Hawaii and the Island of Hawaii. Kohala is split into two areas, North Kohala and South Kohala, with North Kohala covering the more rural, northern end of the island, containing the historic small towns of Hawi, Kapa’au, and the Kohala Ranch communities.

Ka Milo at Mauna Lani
South Kohala
is just south of Kohala Ranch and contains the major, world class resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resorts’, the small town of Waikoloa Village, located 6 miles inland from the resorts and Waimea, the beautiful town in the interior Waimea Valley.

The number of single-family homes sold in Kohala in November 2019 was up slightly Mauna Lani Resort over November 2018, with 22 homes selling in November 2018, while 26 homes were sold this November. This increase in sales volume happened in both parts of Kohala. In South Kohala, the volume increased slightly, from 18 homes to 19, and in North Kohala there was an increase of 3 homes, from 4 homes up to 7. The number of condos sold remained the same in November 2019 over last November, with 17 units selling both years.  


As with the November monthly number of single-family homes sold, the overall year-Ka Milo at Mauna Lanito-date volume also increased marginally in 2019 over 2018, with 277 homes being sold by this time last year, while 280 homes were sold this year. This overall increase was not enjoyed in both parts of Kohala, with the number of single-family homes in North Kohala increasing from 60 homes sold 2018, to 66 sold homes this year, while South Kohala decreased from 254 homes last year to 251 homes sold in 2019. The number of condos sold year-to-date was also up marginally, rising from 277 units sold in 2018, to 280 units sold this year.

Even though the sales volume of single-family homes in Kohala experienced slight Halii kaiincreases in November 2019 from November 2018 in most market segments, the change in median sales price was somewhat of a mixed bag. The median sale price in South Kohala experienced a small decrease, falling from $645,295 in November 2018 to $625,000 in November of this year, while North Kohala experienced the only increase, rising a small amount, from $381,250 in November 2018 to $390,000 this November. The condo market was the only segment to remain the same, with the November median sales price being $535,000 in both years.

Although the monthly numbers for November were a mixed bag, the year-to-date Big Island Mapnumbers in November 2019 were mostly down. The year-to-date median sales price of single-family homes in North Kohala experienced the largest decrease, falling 4.32%, from $776,000 in 2018 to $742,500 this year. The median price of single-family homes in South Kohala had less of a decrease, falling just 0.17% from $596,000 in 2018 to $595,000 this year, while the condo market saw the only increase, rising just 0.86%, from $525,000 last year to $529,000 in 2019.


Analysis:
The monthly sales volume and median sales price numbers in November 2019 reflect how the market has been for most of 2019 in Kohala. A market that has pretty much remained flat in sales volume and price appreciation, in comparison to 2018.

Puako Beach
The Kohala Coast is the majestic area located on the west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. The Big Island received its name as to differentiate it between the State of Hawaii and the Island of Hawaii.

The Kohala Coast is made up of two regions, North Kohala and South Kohala, with North Kohala covering the more rural, northern end of the island, including the small towns of Hawi and Kapa’au, as well as the Kohala Ranch communities farther south.

Mauna Lani Resort
South Kohala
covers the world class resorts of Mauna Kea, Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Beach Resorts’, the small town of Waikoloa Village, located 6 miles inland from the resorts and Waimea, the beautiful town in the interior Waimea Valley. You can find market updates for many of these areas by visiting the Market Update Page on my website.

Mauna Lani Resort The number of single-family homes sold in October 2019 on the Kohala Coast increased substantially from last October, with 35 homes selling in October 2019, up from 24 homes last year. That increase was felt in both South Kohala, with 27 single-family homes selling, up from 19, and North Kohala, with 8 homes selling, up from 5 homes. The condo market also experienced an increase, rising from 17 units sold in October 2018 to 26 units this October.  


Although there was an increase in sales volume in October 2019, the overall year-to-date sales volume on the Kohala Coast has been somewhat stagnant in 2019, with 290 single-family homes being sold this year, down slightly from the 292 homes sold this time last year.

Kohala CoastThe number of single-family homes in North Kohala increased slightly from 56 homes sold by this time last year to 59 homes this year, and South Kohala saw a slight reduction, with the number of single-family homes falling from 263 homes last year to 231 homes sold this year. The number of condos sold year-to-date enjoyed a small increase, rising to 263 units sold this year from 260 units sold in 2018.

The change in median price this October over last year was, however, a mixed bag. The median sale price in North Kohala experienced a spectacular decrease, falling from $1,169,000 in October 2018 to $730,000 in October of this year. This type of wild change in median sales price is quite common in a low sales volume environment such as North Kohala.

The South Kohala median sales price in October 2019, however, saw a small increase, rising to $599,000 this year from $580,000 in October 2018. The condo market median sales price enjoyed the largest gains, rising from $508,500 in October 2018 to $720,000 this year.

Even with the mixed bag of numbers in October’s median sales price, all market Kohala Coastsegments remained relatively the same as last year in their year-to-date numbers. Single-family homes in North Kohala saw the only decrease, however small, in their year-to-date median sales price, falling an ever so slight 0.61% from $825,000 in 2018 to $820,000 this year, while the single-family homes in South Kohala remained the same, staying at $595,000 in both years. The condo market experienced the only increase in its year-to-date median sales price, rising just 1.34% from $522,000 in 2018 to $529,000 this year.

Analysis: October was the first time in many months that we saw a significant increase in sales volume. It was not, however, enough to overcome the flat year-to-date volume in 2019. And except for the usually wild fluctuations in North Kohala, the median sales price has also remained flat throughout the year. As we head into the busy winter season, it remains to be seen if 2019 is a pause in the market, or a trend.
